The infirmity of open science in pharmaceutical research Rather than the panacea for the ills of science in the 21st century, open science is a Trojan Horse for reinforcing the neoliberal commercialisation of science; thus argues prominent historian and philosopher Philip Mirowski. In this event, he presents further evidence from the pharmaceuticals sector to support this thesis and demonstrate how the program is failing. A panel discussion chaired by UCL Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose (IIPP) Director Mariana Mazzucato will follow, featuring Jack Stilgoe (UCL Department of Science and Technology Studies) and Matthew Todd (Open Source Pharma and UCL School of Pharmacy). More speakers to be announced. London, UK more details...

Innovation for Society: the management of socio-ethical issues in responsible innovation - special track at at EURAM 2019 Despite aiming to address grand challenges, innovation may lead to unintended negative consequences if socio-ethical issues are not fully integrated. The Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) framework provides several indications on how to manage innovation in a socially responsible manner; however, its applicability to competitive environments is questionable. This special track will bring together researchers investigating the motivations, capabilities, and mechanisms of integration of RRI in industry and how it supports the management of socio-ethical issues in commercial innovation processes. We aim to strengthen the theoretical conceptualisation of RRI and to create a common understanding implementation in industry. Lisbon, Portugal more details...

Responsible Innovation Cultures - 5th annual German Summer School of Higher Education Research and Science Studies The school will focus on the question of how responsible innovation cultures can be established within institutions of higher education and research, such as universities, and will explore what responsibility in research, development and training might look like in different situated institutional contexts. The summer school will debate the meaning of ‘responsible research and innovation’ (RRI) beyond the mere reiteration of a buzz word and critically and constructively examine what a reorientation towards social responsibility within institutional cultures of higher education and research might entail. Participants will be offered talks by and workshops with research leaders in the field of RRI and can engage in RRI themselves through the experimental practices of design thinking and prototyping.
